Aus v Eng 2nd test, Adelaide

Has anyone worked out when this starts UK time yet?

The Saturday(?) start is throwing me plus the weird time zones and day-night configurations aren't helping.

As far as I can work out the toss will be at 3am Saturday morning UK time.

Sessions will be
3:30-5:30am
5:50-7:50am
8:30-10:30am

Is that right?

BT are advertising it for 2 o'clock so I assume either 2.30 or 3 o'clock start

Edit sorry just double checked and the programme starts at 2.30 on the first day and 3 o'clock from then on so I'm guessing 3.30 start as you said.

It's confusing isn't it?

Just googled it and it's a 10.5 hour time difference and your session times are correct. Glad they're doing the longer interval in the evening, it makes much more sense to me.

Root says Ali will be assessed after practice to see if he can bowl at Adelaide. He could play as a specialist batsman.

Anderson in particular should really enjoy bowling with the pink ball at Adelaide, if past day nighters are anything to go by. Seem to remember the Kiwi bowlers enjoying our batting collapse their a while back. They probably should have won, we were very lucky with a 3rd Umpiring decision that allowed our tail to get us out of bother.

The pink ball usually does a bit.

The pitch is looking much drier than it has than previous years, maybe due to the unusually brutal heat so early in November. Weather is cooling and will be over-cast for the first couple of days however. It will suit Australia and Englands bowlers more than that pudding of a Gabba wicket. Could be done and dusted in 3 days.

Surely we only play four bowlers. Otherwise we would have broad at 8 ball 9 etc.

We will see the value of moeen and stokes

How odd. I'm not quite sure what the point of naming 12 is.

Fitness concerns? Like to look at the pitch or weather?

Do they think they can turn him into one in such a short space of time?

I guess England are banking on winning the toss (50% chance) and going big first innings (20% chance so 10% with the toss) and then using moeen in the second innings.

Does this 12 mean that
A) moeen is fit and could bowl first innings
B) they don't think crane can play as a sole spinner?

Let's hope we win the toss or that it is A. If we lose the toss and we see root and malan bowling then we know it is b.

Will the ball really "swing round corners"?
I could be wrong but didn't Pakistan nearly chase down 490 in the previous day nighter here? It is my understanding that the grass was left long for the first one, but the last one lower and will be again?

Yes, but they have a squad of 16. There is no need to name a squad of 12 for the match.

No, I don't think it will "swing around corners" no but there has only been 1 score in excess of 300 in the 2 D/N tests there so far so the bowlers are likely to be in the game throughout. I think the game you are referring to was held in the UAE.
